Based on a yearlong blog challenge and following a successfully funded Kickstarter for an art book and a widely attended gallery showing of Dreistadt’s original painted art, Capture Creatures is a heartwarming story about over one hundred strange creatures that suddenly appear on Earth and the two teens who will do whatever they can to keep them safe and figure out where they came from.
Praise for Capture Creatures #1:
“…Capture Creatures takes the fun of Pokémon and marries it to a story about conservation rather than battle—giving kids not only a world to explore, but a framework for loving that world. I’d definitely recommend it for any member of the all-ages audience.” – CBR
“…an entertaining opening issue that looks like it could really take off with kids, while giving anyone looking for a fun, wholesome comic plenty to enjoy too.” – Panels and Pixels
“…kids will very happily gobble up this book, and I can already see the collectible card game being introduced, maybe with some cute action figures…” – What’cha Reading
“…Dreistadt does a great job of infusing Capture Creatures #1 with tons of that charm.” – Omnicomic
“…decidedly sweet, charming and quite catchy.” – Coverless Reviews
Capture Creatures #1 second print ships with a new cover by Katy Farina and carries a retail price of $3.99 with a Diamond Code of OCT148462. Final orders close for retailers on December 22nd. It is anticipated to be in stores on January 14th.
